Dragon Boat Racing and the Challenge

Dragon boat racing is the fastest growing water activity in Britain today – as well as the most fun! Up to 10 people paddle each 30’ boat with a drummer at the front beating time and our helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!

The 21st London Construction Industry Dragon Boat Challenge takes place on the afternoon of Thursday 20th June 2019 at West Reservoir, London, N4 2HA and 40 teams from the construction & property sector are expected to compete over the 150m race course.

Hundreds of construction companies have already discovered the sport’s team building benefits and raised much-needed funds for CRASH so why not be part of it? With bankside entertainment and hospitality, a fabulous event is guaranteed!

Standard entry includes:

  • High class venue and facilities
  • Qualified helms, dragon boats and racing equipment
  • At least 2 races per crew
  • Speciality BBQ
  • Bankside entertainments
  • Colour souvenir programme
  • Prizes for the top three crews, the best mixed crew (minimum five ladies), the highest placed platinum or premier crew and the crew raising the most money for CRASH
  • £200 donation to CRASH

The Challenge charity CRASH

CRASH is a unique, practical charity that assists homelessness and hospice charities with construction related projects, creating places that care for people.

CRASH does this by sourcing pro bono professional expertise, building materials and awarding cash grants generously donated by the construction and property industry.

Well designed and expertly built environments have a positive effect on how we all feel and behave. This is especially true for people who are homeless, vulnerable or sick and those who care for them.

By participating in this Dragon Boat Challenge, you are helping CRASH to continue to create places that care for people when they are most in need. Thank you so much for your support.
